Hi, I’m John McNeil and I run software pulse, an online information portal promoting the design and development of applications in Java.

My aim is to help people transition from a novice coder to someone who can confidently design and build their own applications to do what they want to do.

Why Java?  When I started out on this path some 15 years ago, Java was freely available which made it accessible to everyone.  It was also what I like to think of as a real programming language with a compiler and type checking.

No matter what type of programmer you want to ultimately be, Software Pulse will teach you how to connect together a variety tools and standards to build real applications.  Here you will learn skills which will serve you no matter what you go on to do.

I look forward to working with you

John McNeil
